The Dawson County Tigers faced off against the North Hall High School Trojans in the final game of the regular season at Tiger Stadium on Friday, Nov. 2 in what was expected to be a high-scoring affair. Instead, fans of both teams were treated to an intense defensive struggle that resulted in the Tigers' only overtime game of the season, from which they emerged victorious with a 17–10 win over the Trojans. “Nothing went like we expected,” said Defensive Coordinator Brent Cox. “Their coaches had them well prepared.” From the first drive it was apparent that the Trojans had come to play. Led by seniors Daniel Jackson and David Seavy, North Hall drove the length of the field on their opening possession and appeared to put the game’s first touchdown on the board. Fortunately for the Tigers, an offensive penalty took the early points off the board, and the defense forced a turnover on downs to end the threat.
